Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich continues to make the rounds touting President-elect Donald Trump’s agenda, and he recently provided a glimpse into what Americans can expect once Trump takes office in a month.
During a lengthy interview with The Washington Post, Gingrich — who is serving an unofficial role as Trump’s senior planner and outside advocate to sell Trump’s plans and ideas — said the incoming president won’t be like the typical Washington insider who occupies the Oval Office.
“For one thing, Trump is culturally in rebellion,” Gingrich said. “He really is Queens and not Manhattan, and people need to understand that. He is blue collar, middle-class America. He builds buildings. He doesn’t finance them. He actually goes onsite.”
Gingrich said Trump, like former President Ronald Reagan, will be hands off when he needs to be but will micromanage when necessary.
